On tap at the 2013 Bière et Saveur fesival in Chambly, Quebec on September 1st. Very dark brown, small head. Aroma of roasted barley with a touch of sweet whiskey, a little coffee. Taste of whiskey coffee with some sweet barley, good bitterness. This is good, I want the original now!

SlovakSniper (3118) - Candiac/Frelighsburg, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 3, 2013
Une robe noire. Un col mousseux qui se fige pour un instant. Un nez très agréable. Des malts rôtis. Une expression chocolatée forte. Un whisky habile avec ses notes boisées et ses feuilles de tabac. Une impression houblonnée à l’américaine. Sur les papilles, une aimable cohésion. L’eau-de-vie ne bouscule jamais les grains rôtis et torréfies. Les fleurs de houblons et la résine sont des vecteurs harmonieux. Il y a sur ma langue les notes d’une fumée latente et épicée. En bouche, le liquide présente un corps de moyenne densité avec un pétillement modéré à faible et une texture soyeuse. Autant d’éléments qui contribuent à une plus grande buvabilité. La finale me montre des notes amères doucement flattées par un whisky caramélisé.

JulienHuxley (3019) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - JUL 30, 2013
Bottle. Dark black with tan foam. Lots of chocolate, whiskey is quite present but not dominant, light smoky notes. Tons of cocoa flavor, woody, whiskey flavors, light smokiness, tobacco, tasty. Palate is rich but dry, not at all cloying and quite enjoyable. Interesting.

MartinT (7797) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 29, 2013
My Bottom Line:
This Barrel-Aged Robust Porter showcases peated whisky, roasted malts and coniferous hop resins in a wealthy, silky mouthfeel which makes you lick your teeth.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A fluffy head of foam laces all around the deep darkness.
-Wooden notes appear within the whisky smokiness.
-The salty, peaty greenness is perfectly harmonious with the hop signature.
-Dark chocolate lengths are delicious.
-Some caramel is also tasted within, working nicely alongside the salty peated whisky flavors.
-I still prefer the regular version, but this barrel-aged version is still a wonderful variation on the same theme.
-Cooler temperatures make the roastiness stand out too much, whereas warmer temps bring better balance in the malts’ contribution.
-Some raisins are also found here and there.
-The aroma is a bit linear compared to the flavor profile.

Bottle.

Goût de malt torréfié, sucré, café, lait au chocolat noir, amertume en fin de bouche, houblon en arrière-goût. Carbonation moyenne, corps dense. Un autre brassin anniversaire totalement réussi!

Bottle (750 ml). Black with a medium beige head, good retention, and nice lacing. Aroma is of chocolate, light whiskey, caramel and tobacco. Taste is slightly sweet with chocolate, subtle whiskey/booze presence, caramel, light bitterness and wood notes. Medium body. Low to moderate carbonation. A tad thin. Interesting barrel-aged Porter. The barrel treatment is subtle, which is good. Surprisingly drinkable for the style.
